So Much for the Tenth Amendment…

I’ve often said that Republicans only favor states’ rights as long as the states are doing what Republicans want.  Here is a perfect example:  tacked onto the the House version of the Farm Bill, a ploy by Cong. Steve King of Iowa to gut the power of states to regulate food safety.  Why would he do such a thing, you might ask?  Aside from the fact that he’s a hypocritical shit-head, that is?  The answer is simple:  it’s easier, cheaper and more efficient for giant corporations to purchase one US Congress than it is for them to purchase 50 state legislatures.
